This is a CM11.0 (KitKat, Android 4.4) ROM for Razr HD.

I'm not responsible by phone bricks of any kind, or any other damage this firmware may cause to you, to your phone or any accessories conected to your phone.

This rom requires an unlocked bootloader. Recent versions (July/2014) requires an updated (KitKat) bootloader

Everyone with JellyBean firmware/bootloader should use moto_msm8960_jbbl builds. Users who updated to KitKat firmware/bootloader need to use the moto_msm8960 builds.

The ROM is being updated to kernel version 3.4, that was already released to RazrM and for XT926. The kernel 3.4 depends on new bootloader version and XT925 doesn't have it yet (a leak exists, you can search xda).

As Nadlabak and dhacker29 already informed, the M8 will be the last release supporting devices with JB bootloader. All nightly builds will support only new bootloader.

OK. So far so good. Flashed with no issue, neither the rom nor the gapps.
Very smooth. WIFI and radio signals look OK. Downloading all my apps...

After 5mn of testing (!):

- My external SD isn't detected.
- Same transition bug as in a few builds earlier on cm10.2

EDIT:
- All Interface/Menus/Status bar settings are missing
- Some settings are missing from the Camera app (jpeg quality and others)

EDIT2: 20 minutes
No other bug so far. Tested a few apps, are working as expected.
root is OK.
And s**t, that thing is REALLY snappy!.

Hi,
I made a dirty flash.
XT925 (Telcel Mexico)
I was in Carbon nightlies (7.11.13)
Flash ROM over Carbon (CWM 6.0.4.4)
Flash GAPP 4.4
Erase Cache, Erase Dalvik
Boot

Boot without Problems alle Apps working
(Around 70 apps, from whatsapp bbm, rootexplorer, udn lite, asphalt 8,etc)
SD Card not mounted/working
Radio signal works ,WiFi, battery is ok )
GPS locks quickly.

From Carbon have the unlock function with volume keys, that works too. I did not find it in CM, but works.
I flashed superuser.

Till now all is working great. No FC.

Hi guys,

Just flashed here and I´m still testing... Used CWM 6.0.4.4 without any glitches. Flashed Core GAPPS , the minimal one (17mb) with only core code. I also flashed SuperSU 1.6.5 as I don´t like Superuser.

It´s working like a charm!

I didn´t like the launcher, so I exchanged to Nova Laucher as I always used it.

Anomalies found:

- External SDCard doesn´t work.
- Tiles for Radios/GPS/Bluetooth on notification screen doesn´t work to switch the function on-off. It just leads to config screen.
- Sound poping/cracking playing FLAC files. Tried Apollo and PlayerPro. I don´t have any MP3 local to test, will try later. But working flawless with streaming sound. I used 8Track and Cloudaround and the sound is perfect.

Oh, just FYI Viper4Android is working flawlessly without any issue! :)

For a "first build", it´s almost perfect, just few bugs. Epinter, congratulations!

I´ll test GPS and Bluetooth Audio on car as soon as I´m out for lunch. ;)

Tested this. Works great on my Atrix HD. Video playback and external SD seem to be the only bugs for me. Found myself a new daily driver for now.

I didn't try video playback yet, I'll check it!

For me too, can be a daily driver as it is now!

No tethering
No GPS
A lot of menu options off
Some 3G lost signals
SMS and MMS ok

It's ok for a preview.

Mate, GPS is wonderful here! Locking less than 5 seconds. Even inside my apartment when usually is lazy to lock sinal!

I also tested bluetooth audio and is working fine.

I'll test tethering.

I retry installation 3 times.
Only with dirty install GPS returns to normal
WIFI and 3G bars still white (not turn blue).
Tethering still down.

Now GPS is normal? If not, try restore a backup where it locks, reboot with it locked then clean flash KK, might work.

I think white status bar icons are a feature of KK, not a bug. It won't go blue as previous versions. Check if your playstore is connecting and your Google account is syncing normal, it's all set.

Tethering is down. Might not been implemented yet.

I checked video recording is working fine so local video playback, using mx player. But streaming video from YouTube app or any other site from web is not working.

And lock screen rotation too, may not be present yet.

Any other feature is awesome.

Tks.
I know there is some bugs, and CM 11 almost is ok.

But something very wrong happened. I lost wifi. Not turn on. No connection anymore. I put sotck system by rsdlite, but even that, wifi not turn back. WIFI-AP not turn on too. I think it burned. Is there some way to test if really burned?
Tks again.

    Hi,

    Is not everyone who can use cm11 based on the new kernel, so I will build with old kernel that supports JB bootloader, so you can stay up-to-date while the bootloader is not updated.

    I've finally pushed the commit to enable HDR in CM camera (and other generic camera apps) for both jbbl and kkbl builds:
    http://review.cyanogenmod.org/75212
    together with a change needed for it in kkbl builds:
    http://review.cyanogenmod.org/75213

    Both HDR and ZSL (zero shutter lag - default since the last cam related commits) modes seem to work fine on my devices (kkbl xt925 and jbbl xt897).
    Feedback will be welcome (as in the case of flash enable>shot>flash disable>shot killing JB cam in ZSL mode that I completely missed the last time - https://jira.cyanogenmod.org/browse/CYAN-5583 )

    An unfortunate side-effect of this change is that the HDR mode will stop working correctly in Motorola specific camera apps.
    Unless I'll find a way how to detect (in camera wrapper) that a Motorola cam app is being used...

    As I'm currently focused on getting the cam working right specifically in CM camera app, I'm ready to merge it despite its breaking of Motorola cam apps at this point.

    It needs to be euro LTE xt925, because:
    1. there are BP crashes reported by european xt925 CM users (not happening on stock fw) that I want to look into
    2. there's no core developer with euro xt925 (David has xt926, Emerson has Latin American xt925)
    3. 3G coverage in CZ is the worst in Europe and it won't ever get better. Only the LTE coverage is being expanded by the mobile operators here now. So if I should get a new old device for whatever purpose, it should better be euro LTE capable, or I'll rather pass :)

    KK update for xt925 seem to be set in stone and released soon, so that aspect should be fine.

    Hopefully, there will be a 170€ xt925 deal done soon, so if you want to donate to this case, feel free to help. Íf not, no problem.

    Please note that I'm leaving for two weeks vacation with my children and wife and my internet connection will be very spotty, so please expect me to be rather non responsive during that time.

    Status update: I've received 129 USD on donations so far, so a part of the 170 EUR xt925 transaction has been covered by them.
    Thanks!
    The device should be on its way to me already.
    As soon as I return from holidays (+/- 10 days), I should be able to start debugging the moto_msm8960 builds (kk bl - hopefully the official xt925 kk release will happen in time).
